Suppose a man that has been at the Indies for gold should, at his return, himself be taken by them of Algiers, and there made a slave of, and there be hunger-bit, and beaten till his bones are broken, 15 what has he got? what is he advantaged by his rich adventure? Perhaps, you will say, he has got gold enough to obtain his ransom.
Those that make conscience of walking in the commandments of God, they shall be blessed with the bread of life, when others shall be hunger-bit. The greatest part of professors nowadays take up their time in contracting guilt and asking for pardon, and yet are not much the better.
Those that make conscience of walking in the commandments of God, they shall be blessed with the bread of life, when others shall be hunger-bit. "Till thou return to the ground." A Christian should not leave off sweating labour so long as he is above the ground; even until he returneth thither, he ought to be diligent in the way and worship of God. "For out of it wast thou taken."
